Jordan is the only estate in Stellenbosch that has vineyards planted in every direction. Not surprising given Gary Jordan's background as a renowned geologist. It is a real family business where fantastic wines have been made for years. They combine the ripe, concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World and the complex structure of classic wines. The Merlot Black Magic is a 100% Merlot. The wine has a beautiful nose with ripe plums, some vanilla and a little coffee. Silky tannins in the mouth, a full body and vanilla in the aftertaste. Highly recommended for lovers of a solid oak-aged full Merlot.

ABOUT JORDAN

Jordan Winery is professionally run by Gary and Kathy Jordan. Not only do they make excellent wines, Jordan's restaurant, bistro and guesthouses are also worth a visit.

Kathy and Gary Jordan took over the domain purchased by Gary's parents in 1982 in 1992, after both working abroad for two years. Fortunately, Gary was already involved in the planting in the 1980s. Gary is a geologist and used his knowledge to analyze the terroir, ensuring that each grape variety was planted in the right place. Today, Jordan benefits immensely from these choices. Their vineyards are now mature enough to provide fantastic complexity, while other producers have only just begun to plant the right vines on the right soil. Jordan is the only estate in Stellenbosch that has vineyards planted in every direction. It is a real family business that has been making high-quality wines for years. They combine the ripe, concentrated and fruity accessibility of the New World and the complex structure of classic wines. The international appreciation is therefore enormous. For example, the flagship, the Nine Yards hardonnay, has already been named 'Best Chardonnay in the World' twice by the wine magazine Decanter and has also won the Thesis Wine Competition. In 2014, even the 'regular' Barrel Fermented Chardonnay was crowned 'Best Chardonnay in the World' by Decanter! In addition, they also became South African 'Producer of the Year' at IWSC in 2014.

The wines from the Chameleon range have been produced by Jordan since 1993. With the proceeds of these wines, 4 research projects are currently being funded that focus their research on the Kaapse Dwerg Kameleon (Kaapse Dwerg Verkleurmannetjie in Afrikaans). The habitat of this small chameleon species is threatened by urbanization and intensive agriculture, causing more and more of the animal's natural habitat (fynbos) to disappear. By gaining more insight into the living pattern of these (hard to find) animals, it is hoped that they can be saved from extinction. The wines used for this range naturally have the quality one would expect from Gary and Cathy Jordan, but are especially made for the moments that call for wine for festive and relaxed moments; in other words, perfect for a braai with friends!
